But red blood.
But different rights?
He donated ‘black’ blood,
It saved a ‘white’ life
The black blood did not choose; it did not discriminate
It blended with the ‘white’ blood
Little babies in playing parks
They know not black, brown nor white
They see babies
They see playmates
But we poison them
Teach them to discriminate and hate
Someday a generation will rise
That will only know human with dignity as the Grundnorm
